February 28 – May 18, 2019
The El Segundo Museum of Art presents Experience #39: EAT February 28 through May 18.
Curated by Dr. Bernhard Zuenkeler with curatorial assistance by Holly M. Crawford, EAT is a group show examining the creative power of food and eating across place and time. Over the centuries eating has been a tremendous accelerator of driving imagination and cooperation. Our bodies turn food into energy so that we may survive, thrive, and create.
One of the fundamental actions of our lives. We sleep. We breathe. We eat. We love. Without eating nothing moves. But do we pay enough attention about what we eat, how we eat and when we eat? Do we care about preparation of our food, our celebration of eating together? Over the centuries, eating has been a tremendous accelerator of driving imagination and cooperation. Eating has been a driving force for the arts and vice versa. Cooking is certainly a form of art. The preservation of food, the development of new forms of food is a creative task.

The Palos Verdes Art Center presents two new exhibitions, Shooting Gallery and The Little Prince on Saturday, October 27 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Shooting Gallery features new works in cast glass and metal by Mitchell Gaudet that comment on gun violence. Working in Arabi, next to New Orlean’s Lower Ninth Ward, mixed-media artist Mitchell Gaudet is known for his beautiful cast glass sculpture.
His new exhibit, Shooting Gallery, uses the visual seduction of glass to comment on a gruesome American phenomenon: school shootings. Also included are metal castings of toy guns, and sculptures made of found objects, such as shooting trophies coupled to antique school bells. Focusing on the traditions of Americana, the exhibit also includes a carnival shooting booth with a twist – instead of tin ducks, fleeing school children mixed with so-called “active shooters” are the targets. The object is to hit the shooters without taking out a child.
